pricing a motorhome
« on: October 22, 2010, 12:16:45 PM »
Is their a place to find the value on used motorhomes? We have found out about some medical troubles and are facing the fact that the RV will have to go. I found the price on kbb for rv one time but now can't find the link

Sorry to hear about the medical issues and the need to sell the coach. Try Nada Price Guides and click on the RVs tab. Find the make, model and year, but don't check any options.

Tom is exactly right, but next, consider the Low to Avg retail as the highs of pricing.  If you want to sell quick, try about 10% below the Low.  That will put you in or around the trade value.  Good luck with the selling and more than that prayers for your medical issues.

Tom,
Why not check options?  It seems they are factors in the NADA valuation.
Thanks,
Bill

Bill,

Typically, many of the "options" were standard for a given make/model/floorplan, and therefore aren't options worth incremental $$ per se.

Several reasons:
1. The NADA options list is generic - it includes all conceivable options for all RVs of all years and price ranges. You have to know what was indeed an option on yours. Few things on that list are options on newer Rvs.

2. The NADA price is "as typically equipped", so your model may include items that actually were factory options, but are options that most dealers order when they get RVs for their sales lot. 

3. The dealer won't give you any extra trade-in for any options anyway. In fact, most of them don't even look at the rig to quote you a trade-in value. They just want to know the year/make/model.
